What are you using for decode?

I know with the AEA DSP-2232 (and others?) the sync sequence is not outputed
to the computer.  It is used by the DSP modem to synchronize the data stream.

I assume other modems (including G3RUH) do the same as P3T works well with
the DSP-2232 not outputing the sync.

Another part that is not outputted is the idle characters inserted between
telemetry frames.
